Bronson Arroyo vs Braden Looper
Clear. Winds blowing from left to right field at 5-10 m.p.h. Game Time temperature: Around 75.
If Arroyo and Harang can manage to not suck over the next two days, the Reds will complete their first season with 4 starters making 25+ starts and having an ERA under 5.00 since 1992. What's sad about that stat is that there are 10 teams that meet that qualification this season and 85 teams that have done it since the last time the Reds accomplished that feat. Folks, we've seen some bad pitching here over the last decade+.
Looper has owned the Reds recently, going 3-1 with a 1.75 ERA over his last 5 starts against them. He did however lose his last start against them as he surrendered 4 runs over 7 innings while Goodroyo only allowed 2 runs in 7 IP. I'd like to see more of that tonight.
Only three more of these bad boys left! Enjoy them while they're still here!
